Stopping the persecution of Christians in the Middle East was a priority for the Trump administration but now religious freedom advocates are concerned it won’t be a high priority for President Joe Biden, just at it wasn’t as high a priority in the Obama administration. The advocates want an expansion of the steps President Trump took to protect Christians everywhere.

Hundreds of millions of Christians worldwide face persecution, something President Trump regularly addressed during the course of his presidency. Leaders of organizations, who work to combat the persecution of Christians, say they see opportunities for a Biden administration to continue Trump’s legacy, but many are fearful the topic will take a backseat to other initiatives.
